COLD) WAVE HOLD-UPS

A paii of "cold wave crooks"
met William Lanseidel, 2128 W.
Ohio st, last night, Lanseidel had
just purchased a SiOQfur overcoat
and was nearly "home with -it
when two affable looking young
men, well "dressed, but having no
overcoats, Stepped out of an alley.
One of them shoved a toy cannon
against ihe well-garbed Bill's
white temple and spoke gruffly:
"Up witlryoiir hands and off
with that coat."
"Wait aaninute," safd the other
hold-up. He searched the over

"Here, T never .yet took monej
that did &oi belong to me and I'm
not goingf to start now."
Then, coaxed by the gun and
assisted by the two gentlemen,
Bill removed' the precious coat.
One of them tried it on. It fitted
like a glove.
"This'ill do," he said briskly.
"You wear a 40, don't you, Ed?"

BOHEMIA : ' .
Written-for-The Day Book by3erton Braley.
They eat off a trunk and they sit on a box, - -t----The
floor-is all cluttered with fish-nets .and socks, c
They live on spaghetti and red ink and cheese
And talk about "Art" with some miction and ease.
Their hair's never trimmed, and it's seldom they shave,
At "puritan morals" they sneer and they rave;
They care not to sweep or to scrub or to dust,
They never pay bills till they find that they must,
They go in for fads in their manner of dress,
They revel in dirt and they're fond of a mess.
Of "base money grubbers" they frequently rant,"'
Referring to artists who "sell" which they can't!
Yet give them a chance where the cash is the test,
They're just as commercial as" all of the rest. w
They strut and they swagger, they poise and they pose, '
And each has a horn which he constantly Wows,"
Their minds and their rooms with disorder are rife '
And they call this "Bohemian Xifel"
